Gamma-detectors based on Cherenkov light have attracted the attention of emerging medical imaging applications due to their potential to provide high temporal resolution. I will present the development of a gamma detector concept based on a semiconductor material that combines the detection of Cherenkov light with the signal inducted by electrons to achieve, simultaneously, excellent time, energy, and spatial resolution. I have been working on this detector concept for its use in proton range verification in proton therapy and I will show a benchtop characterization as well as preliminary data acquired at the research beam line at Crocker Nuclear Laboratory, in the UC Davis campus.
